In case in you didn’t get the info, Elastic On Tour will land in Paris by the end on January 25th 2020. A few early bird tickets are still available for those who wish to take advantage of some discounted registration.
For those who wish to register, you can follow this link.
Elastic also has a free registration offer for those who would register for a hands-on Elastic training course that will take place a couple of days before the event (January 20th-22th). This can be worthwhile if you want to ramp-up your ElasticSearch skills. The training is not free though, and you will have to spend 1500€ (regular price) to attend. Discounts are proposed for early bird registrations. Here’s the link to the training courses that will get you a free registration to January 25th’s event
As always, the Elastic On Tour is the best moment to get a clear view on Elastic Stack roadmap, especially for 2020. In this matter, Paris’ edition shouldn’t disappoint, and the agenda proposes a wide range of talks, from technical deep dives to customers feedbacks.
The global roadmap will be presented during the main keynote, and a more technical presentation will be scheduled in a dedicated talk after lunch.
Here are some of the technical topics that will be covered (that you can also get on the Elastic event‘s registration page)
- How to combine logs, metrics and traces to help identify issues and resolve them faster, with Kibana, Metrics Explorer and Prometheus
- How to empower security events investigations with Elastic Endpoint Security, and Elastic SIEM
- How to unify the search of multiple data sources in a workplace, using ElasticSearch and its connectors
- Presentation of the new features in Kibana in particular to make geo data more actionable
- How to use machine learning to detect anomalies and model time-series
- How to run Elastic Stack the best way on Kubernetes
- How to scale your Elastic infrastructure with no pain
Some other topics will be covered, such as use case presentations and users feedbacks.
Ask me anything booth
Talks at Elastic On Tour events are always very interesting and take care on maintaining a high standard. Though, I must admit, what I enjoy the most about these events is the Ask me anything booth.
This is the very occasion to speak with Elastic engineers and architects. Whether you have questions about what value Elastic can bring to your company, what the best guidelines to deploy you cluster in production are, or how to pass the Elastic certifications, those guys are here to help.
You can even reach out to them and ask for help regarding an issue you are facing with your ElasticSearch integration / deployment / etc.
I truly believe this is the best moment to share with experts, and sometimes this can be so much more effective that wandering around for days on StackOverflow to sort this #@?!% config problem.
Elastic On Event is no more than 200€, which is clearly not that much expensive compared with what you may spend to attend a Spark Summit or a Kafka Summit. I aknowledge that the event is only one day long and proposes less than 20 talks (whereas Spark and Kafka Summits last at least 2 days and propose hundreds of talks dispatched in multiple talk rooms), but the presentations are always very qualitative, and you will have the chance to have ElasticSearch experts at your disposal.
The reason why the events are labeled On Tour is that those events take place about all over the world. You can get the list here. If you have some free time to attend, I strongly recommend that you register for the next event taking place in your town.
